Lacey fences

The design site Doornob Design clued me into a cool re-imagining of the chain link fence yesterday.


The Dutch design agency Demakersvan rethought the omnipresent and always dreary chain link and applied a little old world charm to it. What a great idea and yet another terrific example of thoughtful industrial design. I swear, this has been a week for it.


It has me thinking what other patterns would work in this medium. Can I get it in argyle?


I love this Sharks and Jets homage. Street toughs look less tough when they're climbing over a Lace Fence.

  1. This has nothing to do with those too cool fences. I hereby promise to never put any sort of decorative princess reference (wall word, plaque, etc) in my daughter's room. Thank you, I just had to share that. We forgot to cover this in your previous wall word discussion.

  5. Erika: Hmmmm, that would be cool.

    Nim: Now I'm starting to wonder the same thing. Was that lifting yesterday a fluke or is this the shape of things to come?

  6. It should be a shape of things to come! Your blog is very relevant to what is really going out there in the kitchen and bath design world. Or should I say the design world as a whole. You give both insiders and clients views from both side of how things work. Love the answers to peoples design questions.

  8. Sue: Thank you again for your compliments, I'm touched. Really. I'm happy you found K&RD.

    Kelly: That's really pretty. Are they the samples you were complaining about on Twitter earlier?

  9. Complaining? Who, me? (Yes. I had 3 others about the same size. I love them, but really!)

  10. I know. I sell travertine and my samples are 24x24. When people ask me to bring them over to their homes I just groan. Please no, anything but a home visit with ten pieces of travertine.
